After one year in training, EZMP01 have finished the Core Phase of the EasyJet MPL Programme! The core phase was finished off with a four week training phase at CTCs Bournemouth training centre where we completed three upset recovery flights and five DA42 Twinstar flights (including one in the simulator). Upset recovery looks at how to successfully recover an aircraft from a stall or an unusual attitude, and has come to the forefront of aviation training following the crash of Air France 447 in 2009. We completed these flights in the Diamond DA40 and the Scottish Aviation ‘Bulldog’, both of which were great fun to fly! A lot of focus was placed on our flights in the DA42 Twinstar, in which we focused on further developing our IFR route flying experience and had an in depth look at asymmetric flight and engine failure procedures. Again, the Twinstar was brilliant fun to fly and was notably more powerful than the Cessna 172! It sure made for an enjoyable summer, and we even found the time to visit the beach every now and again.
Below you can find a brand new video which shows how we spent the four weeks at Bournemouth (which was made all the better with wall to wall sunshine)! As usual, huge thanks goes to the staff at CTC who made this phase just as seamless and enjoyable as the previous phases. I hope you enjoy the video 🙂
